PROGRAM TITLE & SPEAKER- District Governor 2014-2015 Loretta Butts
8:00 Brief summary: Her Father was raised here at the homestead at the bottom of Lake Casitas. So Ojai has always been a special place for her growing up. She married her husband at Ojai Valley Inn when John surprised her and took her there as he knew that it meant so much to her. They also spent their 1st anniversary there.
SheTalked about her experiences on an NID where she was part of the promotional campaign to convince Nigerian officials that the vaccination was safe. They were able to participate in the immunizations and vaccinated thousands of children.
She told us about her Rotary Moment where she became a “Rotarian”. Her connections with the people changed her life.
Nigeria, Pakastan, Afghanistan still with cases of Polio. No indemic infections in Afghanistan. She supports and commends Dr. Gould’s efforts to finish off this drive to raise money.
The goal is by 2018 for eradicate Polio.
We want clubs to document their volunteer hours.
When you open the “gift” that your sponsor gave you bringing you into the club and it gives you the “world”.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
If you really believe in what you’re doing, work hard, take nothing personally and if something blocks one route, find another. Never give up. Laurie Notaro – Writer
